For those unfamiliar with DxO Optics Pro software, what you should know that it’s an astonishing piece of software.
It’s ideal for photographers looking to pull back detail from source imagery to perfect shots, with an extensive lens database and chromatic aberration tools.
Version 8.2 now combines the power of its corrections with the creativity of all the new tools in DxO FilmPack 4 (Expert Edition).
This entirely non-destructive workflow handles RAW images as well as JPEG.
With DxO FilmPack 4, photographers can apply to their digital photos all the characteristic colour, contrast, and grain of analog films that made photographic history. We can also combine and customise an infinite amount of filters, tonings and visual effects.
The new tools in DxO FilmPack 4 (Expert Edition) in plug-in mode include a new range of effects that can give RAW and JPEG images an even more personal signature. In particular, such new effects as texture, light leaks, and special frames take users even further into the world of analog film photography.
DxO Optics Pro v8.2 benefits from the continuous development of DxO Optics Modules.
439 new camera/lens combinations now reside in the library, providing support for additional Canon, Carl Zeiss, Konica, Nikkor, Panasonic, Olympus, Sigma, Sony, Tamron, and Tokina lenses, for Canon, Nikon, Olympus, Panasonic, Ricoh, and Sony cameras.
DxO Optics Modules contain tens of thousands of data points about the intrinsic characteristics and flaws of each camera and lens.
This database allows DxO Optics Pro to automatically correct all the optical flaws in RAW and JPEG images – distortion, vignetting, chromatic aberrations, lens softness – with an unrivaled level of quality.
This upgrade is free for all owners of DxO Optics Pro 8, as well as for photographers who purchased a DxO Optics Pro 7 license on or after 1 September 2012.
